Southerners keep their secrets swept under the rug, but what happens when that rug goes up for sale?
Bestselling author Berlye Stone, the most famous citizen to ever come out of Cottonwood, Kentucky, has died and put all her worldly possessions up for auction, but not without leaving one more manuscript behind. A hidden tell-all about Cottonwood that’s got more gossip than a ladies’ luncheon.
When Beryle’s assistant turns up with an ax in her back and the only witness is in a coma, Sheriff Kenni Lowry reckons someone in town will do anything to keep the manuscript from seeing the light of day. Her poppa’s ghost returns to help piece together the life of the Beryle he once knew, but his memory’s a little foggy, and any misstep could cause them a world of trouble. With the help of Deputy Finn Vincent, can Kenni sort through the secrets buried in Beryle’s books, or will this be her final chapter?

This series keeps getting better and better. It is still election season and Kenni must keep up appearances as well as keep down crime. Her ghost partner/grandfather Poppa is still trying to figure out how things work and how he is able to assist Kenni in her town duties.
Deputy Finn is feeling more in his comfort zone, both as a law officer in a small southern town, and as a man with interest in Kenni beyond being his boss.
If you have not read the previous books in this series I strongly suggest you grab them as well but you can read this as a stand alone. There is so much going on that you won't have time to miss what came before. Did I mention Kenni's meddling mama?
A local town celebrity has passed away. Rumor is she has written a tell-all novel that identifies people and secrets. Could they be secrets worth killing to keep quiet? Murder is never welcome but so not needed during an election period!
Figuring out who has the motive takes teamwork -- even the local inn's parrot helps out.
A surprising hero pops up at the end. You'll be glued to the pages waiting to learn who dunit and why.

I acccepted a copy of this book in exchange for review
